50th Anniversary of the University of Iowa’s International Writing Program (IWP)

The IWP is best known for the fall residency that brings writers from around the world to Iowa City. Since 1967, more than 1,400 writers from more than 150 countries have been in residence at the UI. The festival will feature readings by IWP guests at Prairie Lights Books on Monday, Oct. 9, and Tuesday, Oct. 10, as well as panel discussions among this year’s resident writers on Tuesday through Saturday.
